Last night I was able to go out for drinks with a good friend from college. She travels to Tucson frequently for business and so we have been able to meet for dinner quite often over the past year. Usually though I have my children in tow. Last night, however, my husband was home and so the children were left behind. For all of you fellow mothers out there, you know why this is a big deal. I got to go out alone for almost 4 hours, complete a conversation without constant interruption, discuss a variety of adult topics without having to spell out certain words or phrases that I don't want little ones to repeat, and drink more than one alcoholic beverage. I had a blast.
I seriously need to make it a point to do that type of thing more often. Just that small break completely rejuvenated me and gave me the will to go on...haha. So, I am looking forward to my next solo night out in the coming weeks.
